One rough inning brought Porters Chapel Academy’s winning streak to a grinding halt.

Canton Academy (10-6) took advantage of three walks and an error to score six runs in the fourth inning, and went on to beat PCA for the third time this season.

PCA’s winning streak was snapped at five games and its record fell to 9-7. Nearly half of the its seven losses have come at the hands of Class AA Canton.
